8. Welsh Conservatives Debate: Tourism (22 May 2024)

Heledd Fychan: Where I do hope we can agree is that there is more that we could be doing to support the tourism sector and to boost the tourism sector, and I think the Welsh Government needs to take ownership of this as an issue, and that we are perhaps missing out on economic opportunities. What I often think is—. I did spend a long time living in Ireland, and you know how excellent Ireland is at...

8. Welsh Conservatives Debate: Tourism (22 May 2024)

Heledd Fychan: I hope we can all agree here. I was disappointed with the contribution made by Gareth Davies, who seemed to suggest that we shouldn't to be proud of promoting Wales and that people don't want to visit to Wales. I had expected—

8. Welsh Conservatives Debate: Tourism (22 May 2024)

Heledd Fychan: If I could finish my point, then I will take your intervention. No, I'm not taking it at the moment—I want to finish my point. I thought that you were going to mention the link between Venice and Rhyl. I'm sure you are aware of all the myths around the Little Venice exhibition under Queen's Market in Rhyl. So, I think that there are things that we should be taking pride in, some of these...

6. Debate on a Member's Legislative Proposal: A Bill for political education (22 May 2024)

Heledd Fychan: Thank you very much. Would you accept that one of the big challenges is the cost of coming to the Senedd? We have seen cuts and there are challenges facing schools now, and we must look at how we ensure that costs with buses and so on are not a barrier to any schools to visit this Senedd.

6. Debate on a Member's Legislative Proposal: A Bill for political education (22 May 2024)

Heledd Fychan: I'm delighted that Sioned has brought this motion before us today, and I think it's extremely important. It is the most important thing we should be doing, in my view. One of the elements of this role that I enjoy most is visiting schools and colleges, further education and higher education, or welcoming learners to the Senedd and discussing politics with them. And for anyone who thinks young...

4. Topical Questions: The Co-operation Agreement (22 May 2024)

Heledd Fychan: I was half expecting Andrew R.T. Davies to offer to enter into a co-operation agreement with you, given that he has already made that plea on social media, when Vaughan Gething became First Minister. But, obviously, electioneering has started.  I'd also ask perhaps that Andrew R.T. Davies corrects the Record. Actually, 20 mph isn't in the co-operation agreement. There were 46 areas, but that...

4. Topical Questions: The Co-operation Agreement (22 May 2024)

Heledd Fychan: On all steps of the devolution journey, co-operation has played an integral part in the work of the Senedd. Indeed, co-operation has been necessary, because no party has had a majority Government in 25 years. As you said in your response, this is mature politics. And we too are proud of the co-operation that has taken place throughout the existence of this Senedd. It is extremely important...

2. Questions to the Cabinet Secretary for Culture and Social Justice: Questions Without Notice from Party Spokespeople (22 May 2024)

Heledd Fychan: Thank you very much. Clearly, there is a link between all of these cuts in terms of the broader sector. And, clearly, the culture strategy has been long awaited, but you will be aware too that we had agreed that the resources available should go to mitigating the most recent cuts. So, one of the things I would like to ask you is: given the financial situation and the level of cuts across...

2. Questions to the Cabinet Secretary for Culture and Social Justice: Questions Without Notice from Party Spokespeople (22 May 2024)

Heledd Fychan: Thank you for that response. You'll appreciate that a number of comments have been made that have been specifically critical of the Welsh Government's approach to culture and the arts to date. The Welsh writer of the play Nye, Tim Price, was vocal in his concern, stating 'Welsh theatre is in crisis with the cuts, still waiting for a theatre strategy from Arts Council Wales.' And he went on...

2. Questions to the Cabinet Secretary for Culture and Social Justice: Questions Without Notice from Party Spokespeople (22 May 2024)

Heledd Fychan: What's your assessment of the impact of cuts on our cultural and arts sectors in Wales, and do you understand and share the concerns of people like Michael Sheen?

2. Questions to the Cabinet Secretary for Culture and Social Justice: Questions Without Notice from Party Spokespeople (22 May 2024)

Heledd Fychan: Thank you, Llywydd. May I warmly welcome the comments that you've just made in response to Laura Anne Jones? We were all enchanted yesterday outside of the Senedd, and I think we all sometimes need to be reminded of the importance of those things, in terms of our health and our mental health too. They inspire people in very different ways, as was clear from the audience there yesterday. But...

1. Questions to the First Minister: Strategic Action Plan for Period Dignity (21 May 2024)

Heledd Fychan: You will know that this was a world first, with the aim of tackling period poverty, promoting period dignity and breaking the stigma, and Northern Ireland followed suit earlier this month. Whilst the Welsh Government is committed, according to the plan, to tackling period poverty in Wales, and, as you outlined in your response, this has been updated, but it isn't a legal requirement. It means...

1. Questions to the First Minister: Strategic Action Plan for Period Dignity (21 May 2024)

Heledd Fychan: Thank you, First Minister. I have read that update, but, clearly, in terms of the practical side, you will be aware that, in August 2022, legislation was introduced in Scotland that made it a legal requirement to provide period products free of charge.

1. Questions to the First Minister: Strategic Action Plan for Period Dignity (21 May 2024)

Heledd Fychan: 2. Will the First Minister provide an update on the Government's strategic action plan for period dignity? OQ61180

7. Welsh Conservatives Debate: GP practices and funding (15 May 2024)

Heledd Fychan: Perhaps I’ll start by responding to Mike Hedges. I can promise you, Mike, that we have had discussions about independence very often put forward by Plaid Cymru, but, if you’re eager for another one, we’ll discuss it in the group next week, and we’re very happy to have that conversation. [Interruption.] We look forward to that, because this is an issue that we are calling for in terms...

5. Member Debate under Standing Order 11.21(iv): Control of tobacco and nicotine products (15 May 2024)

Heledd Fychan: Thank you, Mabon, for bringing this important debate before us today. It is a problem, and we have to recognise it as a major problem. As Plaid Cymru's education spokesperson, I often have teachers, but also pupils, approaching me telling me how concerned they are specifically about vaping, but also smoking among young people is still a problem.  I was brought up in the 1980s, I'm now 43,...

Motions to elect Members to committees (15 May 2024)

Heledd Fychan: Formally move.

2. Questions to the Cabinet Secretary for Climate Change and Rural Affairs: Communities at Risk of Flooding in South Wales Central (15 May 2024)

Heledd Fychan: Thank you very much. Clearly, some of that work emerged from the co-operation agreement.
